Online Spending Skyrockets As A Result Of Rising Gas Prices


One thing is becoming clear with the rising price of gas: consumers are choosing to stay home and avoid driving as much as possible. This has resulted in a rise of consumers shopping online, and businesses with a functional website are seeing a big increase in sales.

”Even with the economy the way it is people still love shopping, and they are doing it online instead of going down to their local shopping centers,” explains Joel Walters from

”While some traditional brick and mortar businesses are feeling the pinch and even going out of business, small biz owners who have successfully made the transition online are reaping big rewards. With far less overhead costs, less employees and an automated sales process, record profits are being seen by many businesses with successful websites.”

According to Walters, a large number of small businesses could add 10-30% to their yearly profits just by having good marketing based website. A website can automate the entire lead generation and sales process literally acting as an online sales rep bringing new customers for the business night and day. Leaving the business owner to concentrate on what they are good at: running their business.

The return on investment for a website can be outstanding for a business owner, generating tens even hundreds of thousands of dollars per year. Considering the relatively small investment of a few thousand dollars for a website, the returns are massive.

”Although there are millions of dollars being spent online right now, businesses still need a well constructed internet marketing plan before making the transition online. It is important to build a website the right way - the way that makes you money" states Walters.
